Gianluca Di Marzio drops Tottenham Hotspur manager claim

Antonio Conte could be in line to take over from Nuno Espirito Santo as Tottenham Hotspur’s new manager.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a claim made by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, who suggested in a post on Twitter that it is only a matter of time until the former Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan manager is appointed at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium following Nuno’s sacking on Monday morning.

In his tweet, Di Marzio said: “Antonio Conte @SpursOfficial” – accompanied by an hourglass emoji.

Would Conte be a good appointment for Spurs?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Fans surely buzzing

Following Spurs’ 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday – a result which left Tottenham fans furious on social media, as well as the team in eighth place in the Premier League standings – it very much appeared to be a matter of when rather than if Nuno would be relieved of his duties as the club’s manager.

And, after reports on Sunday had claimed that Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici were meeting to discuss the future of the 47-year-old boss, it was confirmed on Monday that the former Wolverhampton Wanderers manager would be leaving the North London side with immediate effect.

Rumours regarding Antonio Conte’s subsequent appointment began almost immediately, with Di Marzio being one of the first to suggest that a deal for the Italian could be nearing completion, as well as offering a further update on his initial three-word tweet, stating: “Antonio Conte is expected to be in London today for final details and will sign a contract until 2023 with @SpursOfficial.”

And, should Levy manage to finally convince Conte of a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after failing this summer, it would appear to be a genuinely positive appointment by the Spurs chairman – after the disappointment of both the Jose Mourinho and Nuno eras.

Can you remember these Spurs kits? We'll start with an easy one, which season is this famous strip from?

Indeed, Conte is a serial winner, having lifted three consecutive Serie A titles with Juventus, the Premier League in his first season at Chelsea, and once again lifting the Scudetto with Inter Milan last term.

As such, with Spurs having been in something of a freefall decline since the departure of Mauricio Pochettino back in 2019, if there is one man who has proven he knows what it takes to return a side to the top, it is Conte. His return to London would undoubtedly leave fans of the Lilywhites buzzing.
